Where in Tyrol?

Jump to last reply

We are a couple with 2 kids (3 years and 6 years) coming to Bavaria and Tyrol this June (9 June to 25 June). Leaving aside our arrival and departure days we should have 15 clear days which we have decided to divide equally between 3 bases.

We have already finalised and booked for our first (Garmisch - we will use it to explore Mittenwald, N'stien Castle, and Innsbruck besides of course Garmich region). We have also finalised and booked our 3rd base which would be Munich.

In between we had planned to keep Mayrhofen as our base for 5 nights. However I have read that Penkenbahn is closed for the summer and there is a lot of construction on in the town so are worried that it may not be a good idea staying there. I am looking for advise whether to change my base or not and if so which would be a good alternative. Someone suggested Kitzbuhel. Mayrhofen sounded interesting due to the various activities we as a family together could indulge in and the fact that it could make for a nice base to explore Hintertux Glacier, Achensee, etc.

I would really appreciate your views on a choice of base. The important thing should be that it should not be too similar to Garmisch. I must add that we have already covered Salzkammergut region a couple of years back so while we really enjoyed that area we are keen to explore a new region this time.

Thanks in advance.
